Unfortunately, the problem is real..... Perhaps yours is okay, although you may want to test it out, since this defect has a real world consequence if you take a photo in low light with a timed shutter (I used 30 seconds).

This doesn't sound like a real-world problem, but a very contrived problem. When shooting low-light with a 30 second exposure, how often is a bright light shining directly at the mount (and not into the lens)?

I stopped following this when I find I could replicate similar behaviour on pretty much every other camera I could find. About three weeks ago, I joked that we would next be hearing that the weather sealing doesn't protect against immersion - now we do indeed have people speculating on the light leak reducing the efficacy of the weather sealing.

It's silly season I suppose.
